Default Extract pumpkin ale?

Im looking to do an extract pumpkin ale with steeping grains. Any good recipes floating around??? I want good strong malt flavor and I wanna be able to taste pumpkin pie. Preferably 5% or higher

Try Northern Brewers Smashing pumpkin ale, I made it and changed the steeping grains a tad, came out really good, might add a little more pumpkin spice than they recommend.

I'd like to steer clear of kits. I think ill just whip up my own recipe. What's a good choice of hops for this style?

I used some Chech Saaz in mine, might go with something a little more spicier next time.
